As we come to the end of a year and the beginning of a new year it’s a great time to reflect on all God has done and prepare for what we are believing God for in 2011. As you look back on this last year you will probably see many things that you would like to change or improve. I’ve learned that God loves to help us to move forward even when we feel like we’ve made mistakes.
Read what God says to us…
Isaiah 43:18-19, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”(NIV)
We can learn several important principles from this…
1. Forget the past – We can learn from the past but we shouldn’t live in the past.
2. God wants to do a NEW thing in your life right now.
3. Do we see what God sees? He sees that we have tremendous potential and we are made in His image!
4. God can make a way when it seems like there is no way! The devil wants you to think that the worst is yet to come but God says the BEST is yet to come! God can even turn a dump into a gold mine… He can take a life that feels messed up and turn it into a masterpiece.
This Sunday at C3 Church we are launching a brand new series called RESET. We are going to take several weeks and look at how we can get a fresh start in life. I’m looking forward to kicking off the new year fresh and strong with the power of God. Spread the word and let’s get a fresh start together!
